11:40 – 12:10 Blender Audio Visualizer
After animating some property in Blender using keyframes you can edit their corresponding curves. When something is “animated”, it changes over time. This curve is shown as something called an F-curve.
Basically what an F-curve does is an interpolation between two animated properties. In Blender, animating an object means changing one of its properties, such as the object’s location, or its scale.
Using the f-curves in the graph editor, we can create animation from a music file. The imagery is generated and rendered in real time and synchronized with the music as it is played. This process is called baking.
Baking a curve replaces it with a set of sampled points, and removes the ability to edit the curve
We can build an audio visualizer in Blender. We’ll use audio files from YouTube Audio Library. You can also select from SoundCloud’s Royalty Free music library. Let’s do this together. You might choose to add arrays, particles, color shaders and emissions –
Create a Folder called Visualizer. In the folder have your audio file, blender file and render file. No MKV files. Upload the whole file to your Week 24 Folder.
Filename: Visualizer.blend and Visualizer Render.mp4
